GGPoker’s signature high-stakes special Super MILLION$ Week tournament series has returned for its fourth outing this month, with a much bigger schedule and double-sized guarantees.
The Super MILLION$ Week debuted back in March 2021 with 31 events and $30 million in guarantees held over a period of nine days. This time around, GGPoker will host a total of 72 high stakes events over two weeks, with a total prize pool of more than $40,000,000.
This makes it the largest Super MILLION$ Week festival since its inception and also the largest high-stakes series hosted on GGPoker.

The fourth Super MILLION$ Week launched on Sunday, January 23, and will end two weeks later, on February 6. Over this period, players will have a chance to take part in a variety of poker formats and events, with a $5,000,000 Guaranteed tournament being the flagship event of the Week.
In addition to this massive $10,300 buy-in event, the Week will include eighteen events with a guaranteed prize pool of more than $1,000,000, special bounty tournaments, and the biggest Freezeout tournament around with a $1,000,000 guarantee.
Poker fans and players will have a chance to watch the broadcast of the Super MILLION$ Main Event final table at GGPoker.TV on February 1, with players’ hole cards exposed and live commentary as the action goes on.
Compared to its previous two versions, the fourth iteration of the Super MILLION$ Week will be more than double in guarantees and $10 million larger than the inaugural series held in March 2021.
Enticing Schedule for the High-Rollers
Curiously, the original schedule had $20 million in guarantees across 42 high-stakes events and was slated to run just a week. The operator not only doubled the guarantees to $40 million but also nearly doubled the number of events.
The Main Event of the Week will feature a $5 million guarantee, with multiple Day 1 flights and opportunities for players to book their seat in Day 2 of this prestigious $10,300 buy-in event. The majority of all events will be played at Texas Hold’em tables, with a variety of formats such as bounty and deepstack offered every day of the Week.
Omaha players will also get plenty of opportunities to test their skills, with the massive Omaholic Bounty tournament featuring a $1 million guarantee and multiple Stage 1 flights, as well as several other PLO events along the way.
Finally, the Week will also include a $100k guaranteed Short Deck tournament with bounties, reserved for the high-rollers with its $5,250 buy-in fee.
